Forward Plan


We have a statutory obligation to publish key decisions in a forward plan. The forward plan provides information on all decisions to be made at future Cabinet Meetings and whether or not the item of business will contain confidential or sensitive information, meaning that the public will be excluded from the meeting. 

A key decision is one which is significant in terms of:

·         expenditure

·         savings

·         being likely to have a significant effect on communities living or working in the area comprising two or more wards or electoral divisions

To comment, or for more information on the forthcoming decisions please contact the relevant officer listed in the Plan.  To view the Forward Plan please click here.
